Stella Kapodistria is assistant professor in the section Stochastics of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in Eindhoven University of Technology. She has obtained her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Athens (cum laude) in 2009, having previously secured a personal grant from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation for graduate studies. Stella was adjunct lecturer (2009-10) at the University of the Aegean, Greece. In 2011 she moved to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, TU/e, where she worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow until 2013.  Thereafter she worked as a visiting assistant professor at Groningen University.

Her main research interests lie on the field of Applied Probability - Stochastic Processes and Queueing Theory. More concretely, on the modeling and study of stochastic processes with applications to queueing theory, population growth models and maintenance design. The research topics that motivate her research tend to be real-life problems arising from practical situations, which can be analyzed using traditional and non-traditional tools from queueing theory and stochastic processes.
